Open Educational Resources: Open Pedagogy Examples

This guide is designed to assist faculty in the exploration, identification, evaluation, selection, and adoption of Open Educational Resources

Samples of Open Pedagogy

This page includes several examples of open pedagogy assessments. The link below to Samples of Open Pedagogy  is a google folder which includes samples of open pedagogy assignments, and tools for teaching attributions and open licensing. 

Students as Textbook Contributors

A professor collaborates with students in an American literature survey course to create an open anthology of public domain literature to replace a commercial text.


Students as Community Partners

Students in a service-learning course on digital storytelling design an interactive game for their community partner, the university library, to integrate into the library's information literacy program.


Students as Question Bank Authors

Students write multiple-choice questions in a social psychology course that uses an open textbook for which there is no associated question bank.

Students as Engaged Learners

A teacher discusses her experiences using open educational resources (OER) in a redesigned communications class. The benefits she describes include deepening students' critical thinking skills by involving them in resource selection and engaging them in a dynamic learning process. Students share an appreciation for exposure to different perspectives, reduced textbook costs, and passionate teachers. Read more student perspectives on OER

Students As Producers - Open Case Studies Project

The Open Case Studies project at UBC brings together faculty and students from different disciplines to write, edit, and learn with case studies that are free and open--they are publicly available free of cost, and they are licensed to allow others to revise and reuse them. The project began with a focus on case studies related to topics in environmental sustainability, but has expanded to include case studies on other topics as well.

Christina Hendricks, faculty at UBC and one of the Case Study project contributors, compiled a blog post about the project which encompasses a comprehensive overview of the project basics.  She blogs at You're The Teacher: Teaching & Learning, and SoTL, in Philosophy.
